Speaker Bio: Dr. Luca Petrelli received his PhD in Mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2004. After coming to the US from the University of Rome in 1998, he worked with David Kinderlehrer on the Wasserstein Metric problem. Further research included an examination of optimal transportation problems under this metric as well as general diffusion PDEs. Dr. Petrelli is currently an Assistant Professor at Mount St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
